Updated: fragment events in 2015 and 2016

It is hard to believe that the year is already half over, but there are still important events coming up, and 2016 is already starting to take shape!


August 11-13: The OMICS Group is holding a conference entitled Drug Discovery & Designing in Frankfurt, Germany, with FBDD listed as a conference highlight.

September 22-24: Newly added! CHI's Thirteenth Annual Discovery on Target will be held in Boston again, and fragments play an important role in several tracks, including epigenetics and kinases. Also, Teddy and I will be teaching a short course on Targeting Protein-Protein Interactions on Monday, September 21.

December 15-17: More than 40 presentations. 8 countries. 3 days. One event:
The first-ever Pacifichem Symposium devoted to fragments.

The Pacifichem conferences are held only once every 5 years in Honolulu, Hawaii to bring together scientists from Pacific Rim countries including Australia, Canada, China, Japan, New Zealand, and the US. Registration is now open!


February 21-24: Zing conferences is holding its inaugural Structure Based Drug Design Conference in Carlsbad, California. This looks like a cousin of last year's Caribbean meeting, so it should be a lot of fun.

April 19-22: CHI’s Eleventh Annual Fragment-Based Drug Discovery, the longest-running fragment event, will be held in San Diego. You can read impressions of this year's meeting here, here, and here; last year's meeting here and here; the 2013 meeting here and here; the 2012 meeting here; the 2011 meeting here; and 2010 here.

October 9-12: Finally, FBLD 2016 will be held in Boston, MA. This marks the sixth in an illustrious series of conferences organized by scientists for scientists, the last of which was in Basel in 2014. Surprisingly, this also seems to be the first dedicated fragment conference in Boston. You can read impressions of FBLD 2012FBLD 2010, and FBLD 2009.
